Derma Excel 7 Overview
Derma Excel 7 is an anti-aging treatment with a twist in that it claims to be able to spot-treat especially problematic wrinkles, as well as soothing, firming and repairing the skin. It works using a combination of peptides, lipids and botanical extracts, and results are expected within 30 minutes.
The site is very science-heavy, and the main product info page is swamped with an extensive explanation of how the treatment works. There is some background info regarding how the nervous system activates muscles and exactly how the cream counters this, ingredient by ingredient. While a little tedious, it does provide a thorough understanding of exactly how the treatment works. Despite this, however, there is neither information on any clinical trials, nor any indication as to what level of results there are to be expected, and after how long.
The treatment is manufactured by Janson Beckett, a New Jersey-based company, who also offer lip-plumping, anti-cellulite and sun care solutions. The site has a general photo testimonials section (sent in by customers), but none of these are specific to Derma Excel. There are also some testimonials and a brief FAQ section, as well as a doctor endorsement from a California-based dermatologist. The company can be contacted by mail, phone or email, and there is an option to chat live online with a specialist.
Derma Excel 7 – Product Description
The treatment has a number of main active ingredients. There is the triple peptide complex, which includes Argireline, Snap-7, & Leuphasyl. Argireline has effects similar to Botox, which reduces the contraction of facial muscles, smoothing out wrinkles. Snap-7 is a heptapeptide, a more advanced level of peptide that further reduces more problematic wrinkles, hence the treatment’s ability to spot-treat severe facial lines. Leuphasyl, a pentapeptide, helps to relax muscle contraction on a level within the nervous system.
Aside from this, it’s difficult to wade through the excessive scientific information as it feels very much like a lab research paper, but there is a complete list of ingredients provided, and includes moisturizing shea butter, emollient linoleic acid and DMAE (dimethylethanolamine), which tightens the skin through water retention. Soybean oil and milk thistle extract are also used as soothing botanical extracts, but there are a lot of parabens used, which have been cast in a recent negative light due to possible cancer links
A 1oz bottle costs $129.95, and can be bought from the official site, which proudly offers a 60-day money-back guarantee. The treatment can also be bought online from other websites, but there’s no information on the official site detailing any physical in-store stockists.

Derma Excel 7 – The Bottomline
Derma Excel 7 doesn’t appear to stand out among the many Botox-alternatives available, aside from its hefty price tag and claim to be able to spot-treat problematic wrinkles. Its promise of being able to treat a variety of wrinkles (from fine lines to deep wrinkles), is intriguing enough to give it a try, particularly in light of the positive-looking before/after photo testimonials and some positive online reviews (although only a few reviews exist). And with a 60-day money-back guarantee, there is no risk to do so.
